Hales, Derek (2013) Design fictions an introduction and provisional taxonomy. Digital Creativity, 24 (1). pp. 1-10. ISSN 1462-6268

This article introduces the special issue of Digital Creativity on Design Fictions for which I was Guest Editor. The Special Issue is the first international peer reviewed journal on this burgeoning design practice. The article is an attempt to grapple with the notion of Design Fictions and considers this a ‘speculative turn’ within contemporary design practice. It presents Design Fictions as a cluster of problems, rather than offering a single definition of Design Fictions it outlines their ‘multidimensionality’ to suggests that Design Fictions create a discursive space within which new forms of cultural artefact (futures) might emerge.
